Oboe Cleaning Swab
- Ex Tax: $23.95
These oboe cleaning swabs have been meticulously designed by Tracey Nuthall: textile designer and proud parent to a long time multi-instrumentalist! The result of her research and efforts is a fabulous swab which wicks moisture effortlessly and efficiently.
The key features of these swabs are:
- Single layer of fine silk/cotton blend fabric
- The use of fine fabric ensures there is no risk of the swab getting caught
- The low friction swab travels quickly through the instrument making mop-outs between orchestral movements even more efficient
- Durable cord at both ends allowing you to pull the swab in and out from the top and bottom of the joint
- String of weights
- Environmentally friendly plastic-free packaging
- Made in Australia by a local textile artesan
- Care instructions provided
Sweet Reeds are proud to feature these swabs. We have tested them with our oboe playing community and oboe teachers with a resounding thumbs up!
We love that these are handmade in Melbourne because we care about supporting local industry. We also love the plastic-free packaging! These little cuties are packaged with care by hand, using recycled card.
